  • Aguest

    You'd definitely prefer the Heather's soundtrack version of 17.

  • Aguest

    Riverdale doesn't need music, idk why it has it. It's ridiculously autotuned.

    I know you don't like musicals but you should react to Hamilton. It is soooo good! I think you'll love it

    Riverdale’s Seventeen is DEFINITELY better

    He should see the Glee version of Maybe This Time, it’s honestly much better than Liza Minelli’s!

    At 7:00 the original was actually by Cole Porter in 1934 and his original recording is definitely so much better than both versions. The Riverdale version ironically completely misses the point of the lyrics and actual makes the song what the original song was critiquing.

    Talkin bout riverdale meanwhile joel over here lookin like Archie 😉

    Apa in Hungary means Father. I freakin love Riverdale,sooo doesnt really matter,that how they sing,still i like their voices.😊

  • BeatrixTomomizu

    When there comes a musical you actually know and know kinda all the songs... I LOVE the Heather musical and I have the CD versions so I know, the songs in a clear voice... that was so weird xD and riverdale took 17 and just made it like the musical... kinda was a bit weird cause the boy vocals were in a diffrent tune, but ok... and Candystore was just a REALLY BIG mess... that was just aweful... I love this song and really love to sing it and Riverdale took it and threw it a in a waste bin with might... (it's really hard when your like: In german I would say "Die haben den Song in die Tonne getreten" and you need to phrase it somehow understandable in english...)

    I love how Joel hasn't watched Riverdale so he doesn't know the backstory like where he's like *is that a hooters*

  • beachmagnolia

    Me: Roomies opinion is gold. Hes always right. Me 2 min later: BITCH you did not just choose an over produced and auto tuned version over my queen Sutton Foster! You're dead to me!

    the fact that they picked sugar daddy from the movie and not the broadway version hurts my heart lmao

  • Femke

    I love how Joel doesn’t know who like huge deals are in musical theatre. Especially Sutton Foster or Barrett Wilbert Weed. And Renee Elise Goldsberry is amazing and literally won a tony but he just says ‘that other girl’ It really amuses me as a big musical theatre fan

  • amricatt

    I remember trying this show out when it first came out. It wasn't very good. I saw the title of this and had to ask myself, when did they started singing?

  • Jennifer Evans

    You really need to watch the Neil Patrick Harris Sugar Daddy from Hedwig too, it's more rock & really good. I love the original, but Lena Hall wins my hear as Yitzhak. ❤

    Cold Sprouse wasn't singing during the chorus of seventeen. They mixed his voice with a professional singer.

    considering that riverdales cast is supposed to be teenagers and they're singing songs about going out and getting boozed up and drunk thats a hard pass for me...

  • Twilightwild

    It almost feels the creators got inspiration from High School Music

  • Twilightwild

    I’m not a big fan of the show or the music. I just feel like the show took a bad turn after season 2

  • MrSir014

    Would be awesome to see you review musical films. Like Sweeney Todd, Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera, etc.

    as much as i love seventeen and heathers in general, I gotta give it to riverdale too. although I way preferred the original candy store

    Riverdale nearly ruined Heathers for me

  • Mikayla

    *video plays* RoomieOfficial: “hmm” *video continues* RoomieOfficial: “OH THEY SING WELL”

  • SSBGogetaFTW

    the odd thing about the heathers one is that the song is literally about a girl trying to talk down an actual serial killer and Riverdale decided "Cute!!! romantic!!!" while JD is literally manipulating Veronica into believing his lies lol

  • Mona

    okay but like seriously, why exactly did riverdale start adding musical numbers in?? Like I see no benefits for the show at all, it was fine without them in like season 1

  • B

    im a fan of riverdale (and a fan of yours ofc) and basically the musical numbers are 1 of 3 things 1. part of the musical episodes (yaknow, school musicals) 2. one of the characters (mostly josie and veronica) are performing at an event or the speakeasy 3. it just kinda happens

  • doreime

    This is one of my newest favourites but I think it’s because I also am baffled by riverdale

  • riley hietla

    As someone else who's never seen Riverdale....... wtf? There's musical numbers? Why?

  • Kimotee

    I would actually love to see Joel react to some more musicals. As a big musical fan, I completely understand why people don't like them but I think he'd appreciate some of the vocals, and would love to hear what he has to say.

    Joel, you should definitely consider a "real" musical episode, you'll see "that girl" from the "Rent" clip again (Renée Elise Goldsberry). Hamilton in it's entirety will blow you away!

    Riverdale is literally awful when it comes to music and they make the people with the worst voices sing the most. In my opinion, Lili Reinhart is pretty much the only one with a decent voice. I was honestly surprised though at how well Cole Sprouse did in the ballad song where him and Lili had to harmonize. That’s definitely my favorite one they’ve done on Riverdale.

  • lucy mckain

  • Anna Harris

    But why did Riverdale make the girl in blue (who im guessing is veronica) sing Heather's part? Veronica isn't like that at all **visible confusion**

    I think if you compared Neil Patrick Harris’ Sugar Daddy instead of the original film, the Broadway version would have won.

  • Gabby

    I thought ‘Out tonight’ was going to be the movie version and I honestly have nothing against Rosario Dawson but let’s be real Renee Elise Goldsberry was one of the best Broadway mimi’s ever. Edit: no most musicals aren’t about ‘ladies of the night’ every musical is different but some have numbers like that to gain attention from the audience. Edit: ANYTHING GOES IN HERE WAS EVERYTHING SUTTON FOSTER IS LITERALLY MY IDOL AND I ASPIRE TO BE HER! Sutton foster was in the 2011 revival version of anything goes (the one in this video) but the original musical which I believe was in 1987 or 1997 was originally sung by Patti LuPone. JOEL I’M DISAPPOINTED YOU DIDN’T PICK SUTTON’S VERSION (but you also missed her tap dance break and final note in the song not to mention she won her second tony for her performance in anything goes.

  • MrFlyingFox76

    You should do The Magicians, I absolutely loved their song episodes.

  • Daisy

    the singer from anything goes is fiona from shrek the musical

  • Janka

    I’m sad he missed the one where Jughead and Betty are shouting at each other, I think we all wanted to see his reaction

    the reason why some of the production are similar to the glee production is because the producer from riverdale also worked on glee :))
